Every year, CalRecycle makes funding available to municipalities to help fund the construction of rubberized asphalt-concrete roads. The progam is sustained by the efficient utilization of disposed automobile tires in California. The rubber from the tires is mixed into an asphalt-concrete blend to form pavement. Typically, a rubberized asphalt-concrete road generates less roadway noise than a standard ashpalt-concrete road. Rubberized asphalt-concrete is often used in or around residential areas to mitigate any noise created by traveling motorists.
Here are some photos from the installation of rubberized asphalt-concrete on Villa Woods Drive and Stone Avenue. The City was awarded funds through CalRecycle's Rubberized Asphalt Concrete program 2014-15 cycle year to help pay for this project.
